yeah, the eVGA is the best way to go, or you can get the leadtek from newegg and it has the BIG heatsink which you can OC to an ultra easy. and its cheaper

The evga 6800 is the best way to go. Unlock the pipes and flash the bios to GT and there ya have it cause its the same thing man. Its safe and the only way you can "fry" it is if you OC it but there shouldnt be a problem cause im sure it will shut down or warn you when its to hot. At least thats what its supposed to do.

I bought the eVGA 6800 not too long ago because its faster than a 6600GT because of the architecture. it stays pretty cool with stock cooling. right now, my 6800 is 61C and that is after playing the fear demo about 15 minutes ago. the stock cooling is fine for the 6800 unless you plan to do OC'ing.
